700 Club Interactive: Made in Israel: Clean and Green – April 9, 2015

Saving the environment is a popular cause today, but Israelis have been "going green" since before they were even a state. Gordon Robertson looks at a few of the creative "environment-saving" ideas that Israelis have either ... Read Transcript


Gordon: FROM A

BATTERY-POWERED CAR TO A

CARDBOARD BICYCLE.

THERE IS NOWHERE ELSE IN

THE WORLD THAT HAS THAT KIND

OF THING.

HOW ISRAELIS ARE GOING

GREEN.

ONE OF THE JEWISH

COMMANDMENTS IS TO REPAIR

THE WORLD UNDER GOD.

TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER

PLACE.

Gordon: SEE HOW THIS

SMALL COUNTRY IS DOING JUST

THAT, ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

ON "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE,"

WE USE TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY

FOR EACH OTHER AND EXPLORE

TOPICS THAT MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO THE SHOW.

ISRAEL HAS BEEN ONE OF THE

WORLD'S TOP INNOVATORS WHEN

IT COMES TO IN PROVING THE

ENVIRONMENT.

ISRAELIS WERE GREEN LONG

BEFORE IT WAS COOL, AND

TODAY THEY'RE WORLD LEADERS

IN ENERGY CONSERVATION.

Terry: BEING GREEN IS

NOTHING NEW FOR ISRAELIS.

THE JEWISH PEOPLE WERE

PIONEERING RENEWABLE

TECHNOLOGY EVEN BEFORE

ISRAEL BECAME A STATE.

TODAY WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT

HOW BEING CLEAN AND GREEN IS

MAKING THE DESERT BLOOM NOT

JUST IN ISRAEL, BUT ALL

AROUND THE WORLD.

Gordon: TO MANY PEOPLE,

ISRAEL IS A PLACE OF BIBLE

STORIES AND ANCIENT RUINS.

IN HUNDREDS OF ARCHEOLOGICAL

DIGS LIKE THIS ONE, ISRAELIS

ARE CAREFULLY PRESERVING

THEIR PAST.

BUT THEY'RE ALSO KEEPING AN

EYE ON THE FUTURE.

AND NOT JUST THEIR FUTURE,

BUT THE FUTURE OF THE

WORLD.

ONE OF THE JEWISH

COMMANDMENTS IS TUHANULA.

WHICH MEANS IN ENGLISH, TO

REPAIR THE WORLD UNDER GOD.

TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER

PLACE.

I SEE A DIRECT

CORRELATION BETWEEN OUR

BELIEF AND THIS INCREDIBLE

EXPLOSION OF ACTIVITY.

Gordon: TODAY THE WORLD

IS FOCUSED ON SAVING THE

ENVIRONMENT.

BUT ISRAELIS WERE GREEN LONG

BEFORE IT WAS POPULAR.

ABOUT A CENTURY BEFORE.

IT'S PART OF THE ZIONISM

DREAM, TO CREATE A GREEN

LAND, A GREEN COUNTRY.

AND, ACTUALLY, WITH TIME,

WITH EXPERIENCE AND

RESEARCH, WE HAVE STUDIED

HOW TO DO IT.

Gordon: THE PROFIT

ISAIAH WROTE ABOUT A TIME

WHEN THE DESERT WOULD

RISE AS A ROWS.

AND TO ISRAELIS, IT IS A

COMMANDMENT.

ISRAEL IS A TINY STATE.

LOOK AT A MAP OF OUR

REGION.

WE ALWAYS USED TO JOKE,

THERE IS NOT EVEN ENOUGH

PLACE ON THE MAP TO WRITE

THE NAME OF ISRAEL.

WE HAVE TO PRESERVE IT, TO

KEEP IT, TO MAINTAIN IT.

THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE.

Gordon: TO THE EARLY

SETTLERS IN ISRAEL, GOING

GREEN MEANT PLANTLY TREES.

AND THEY STARTED IN THE

NEGEV DESERT, A PLACE THAT

GETS ONLY ONE TO SEVEN

INCHES OF RAIN A YEAR.

IN THE 1940s, JERUSALEM

WAS STILL UNDER ARAB

CONTROL.

AND ISRAEL'S FIRST PRIME

MINISTER, DAVID BENGUIAN

BELIEVED THAT THE NEGEV WAY

THE FUTURE OF ISRAEL.

SO HE ORDERED THE CREATION

OF A MAN MADE FOREST THERE.

THE TEAM SAID IT COULDN'T BE

DONE.

AND HIS RESPONSE: NO

PROBLEM, WE'LL GET NEW

SCIENTISTS.

THE PRIME MINISTER GOT HIS

NEW SCIENTISTS, AND THE

NEGEV DESERT BEGAN TO

BLOSSOM.

TODAY THE FOREST HAS MORE

THAN FOUR MILLION TREES,

INCLUDING CAROB, PINE,

OLIVE, AND FIG.

ISRAEL IS AMONGST THE

FEWEST COUNTRIES IN WORLD

THAT AT THE END OF THE

20th CENTURY, THERE ARE

MUCH MORE TREES THAN WERE AT

THE BEGINNING OF THIS

CENTURY.

AND NOW WE HAVE PLANTED OVER

240 MILLION TREES, WHICH IS

A NICE NUMBER TO THIS SMALL

COUNTRY.

Gordon: IN THE CENTER

OF THE FOREST IS A VINEYARD,

PLANTED ON THE RUINS OF

ANOTHER ONE THAT EXISTED

HERE 2,000 YEARS AGO.

SCIENTISTS RESEARCH THE BEST

PLANTS TO GROW IN THE NEGEV,

AND ONE OF THEIR SOURCES WAS

THE BIBLE.

THERE ARE PLENTY OF

ARCHEOLOGICAL RUINS

EVERYWHERE, WATER SYSTEMS,

DAMNS EVERYWHERE, AND WE

STARTED WITH SOME OF THESE

ANCIENT FARMS.

WE HAVE PLANTED BIBLICAL

TREES, AND THE TREES ARE

SURVIVING WITHOUT

TRADITIONAL IRRIGATION BY

COLLECTING RUNOFF WATER,

WHAT I FOREFATHERS DID 2,000

YEARS AGO.

Gordon: THE TREES NOT

ONLY PRODUCE FRUIT, THEY

CLEAN THE ENVIRONMENT BY

ABSORBING CARBON DIOXIDE.

STUDIES SHOW THAT PLANTING

SIMILAR FORESTS ON JUST 12%

OF THE WORLD'S ARID LAND

WOULD REDUCE CARBON IN THE

ATMOSPHERE BY A GIGATON A

YEAR.

TODAY SCIENTISTS FROM AROUND

THE WORLD COME FROM AROUND

THE WORLD TO STUDY THIS

FOREST.

WE ARE PROUD TO SHARE ALL

OF OUR ACHIEVEMENTS TO OTHER

COUNTRIES.

AND, OF COURSE, WE WANT TO

SHARE OUR KNOWLEDGE AND

STUDIES FROM OTHER

COUNTRIES.

Gordon: ISRAELIS ARE

NOT ONLY WORKING TO PROTECT

THE ENVIRONMENT, THEY'RE

ALSO LOOKING FOR NEW WAYS TO

KEEP THE COUNTRY RUNNING

WITHOUT OIL.

ISRAEL ITSELF, IT IS A

BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY, A COUNTRY

DEFINITELY WORTH VISITING

WITH TREMENDOUS LUSH,

INTERESTING AREAS.

BUT WE DON'T HAVE THE

TRADITIONAL GOLD MINES AND

MASSIVE OIL AND DIAMONDS.

WE BASICALLY HAVE A COUNTRY

OF HUMAN RESOURCES, RATHER

THAN NATURAL RESOURCES.

SO WE VERY MUCH VALUE WHAT

LITTLE WE HAVE.

Gordon: ISRAEL MAY ARE

SHORT ON OIL, BUT IT DOES

HAVE ONE NATURAL RESOURCE

THAT IS VIRTUALLY

UNLIMITED.

ISRAEL'S GREATEST NATURAL

RESOURCE, SUN.

WE DO HAVE A LOT OF SUN

HERE.

IT IS A HOT PLACE.

SO WE PRODUCE SOLAR ENERGY.

Gordon: FOR MUCH OF THE

YEAR, THE SUN BEATS DOWN ON

A LAND THAT IS MOSTLY

DESERT.

BUT WHAT SOME MIGHT SEE AS A

LIABILITY, ISRAEL HAS TURNED

INTO AN ADVANTAGE.

ISRAELIS HAVE BEEN USING

ROOFTOP SOLAR PANELS SINCE

THE 1950s, WHEN THEY WERE

STILL UNHEARD OF IN THE REST

OF THE WORLD.

90% OF ISRAELI HOMES HAVE

A SOLAR WATER HEATER.

THERE IS NOWHERE ELSE IN THE

WORLD THAT HAS THAT KIND OF

THING.

Gordon: IN 2011,

ISRAEL'S FIRST SOLAR FIELD

WAS COMPLETED IN THE ARAVA

VALLEY.

THEY NOW HAVE NINE OTHER

FIELDS UNDER CONSTRUCTION,

AND PLANS FOR 40 OTHER

PLANTS OVER THE YEARS.

THE COMPANY'S FOUNDERS ARE

NOW BUILDING SOLAR FIELDS IN

SEVERAL THIRD-WORLD

COUNTRIES, LIKE HAITI,

ECUADOR, AND RWANDA.

THE SOLAR FIELD IN RWANDA

SHOULD BE UP AND RUNNING BY

THE END OF 2013, AND WILL

PROVIDE 8% OF RWANDA'S

ENERGY.

ISRAEL HAS BEEN THE

LEADER IN CLEAN TECHNOLOGY

FROM THE BEGINNING.

PART OF IT, ALSO, IS THAT

OUR NEIGHBORS HAVE HAD A LOT

OF OIL, AND HAVE SORT OF

CORRUPTED THE WORLD ECONOMIC

SYSTEM, AND THE WORLD

POLITICAL SYSTEM, AND USED

IT UNFAIRLY TO IMPOSE, I

THINK, SOMETIMES HARMFUL

IDEOLOGY.

SO IF ISRAEL CAN FIGHT THE

WORLD DEPENDENCY ON OIL,

WHAT WOULD BE A BETTER THING

THAN THAT?

Gordon: IN 2005, AN

ISRAELI DEVELOPER HEARD A

SIMILAR QUESTION AT A

CONFERENCE.

WE WERE ASKED, HOW TO

MAKE A COUNTRY BETTER.

Gordon: HIS ANSWER:

TAKE A SINGLE COUNTRY OFF

OIL, AND THEN THE REST OF

THE WORLD WILL FOLLOW.

THE FIRST STEP WAS TO

ASSEMBLE A FLEET OF CARS

THAT COULD RUN WITHOUT OIL.

SO AGASSI STARTED A COMPANY

CALLED "BETTER PLACE," WHICH

OFFERED AN ELECTRIC,

BATTERY-POWERED CAR.

AND FOR LONGER TRIPS,

DRIVERS CAN SWITCH OUT THE

CAR'S BATTERY AT STATIONS

ALL OVER ISRAEL.

THE ENTIRE PROCESS TAKES

LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES.

I HEAR THESE GO FAST.

THEY ARE VERY FAST.

THEY HAVE NO GEAR BOX.

Gordon: WHY ARE THEY SO

FAST?

WHAT YOU'LL FEEL IS THERE

ARE NO GEARS.

THERE IS LITERALLY DRIVE,

REVERSE.

Gordon: ZERO TO 60 IN

HOW FAST?

NINE SECONDS.

Gordon: AS A CONSUMER,

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS

APPEALING TO ME IS THE

ABSOLUTE QUIET.

THE GOAL WAS THAT IT

APPEALS TO EVERYONE.

THEY WANT A CAR WITH GREAT

POWER AND ACCELERATION.

I CAN FIT MY ENTIRE FAMILY

IN IT.

Gordon: THAT WAS FUN.

UNFORTUNATELY, PUBLIC DEMAND

FOR ELECTRIC CARS HASN'T

CAUGHT UP WITH THE VISION OF

"BETTER PLACE."

AND THE COMPANY FILED FOR

BANKRUPTCY IN MAY OF 2013.

BUT SOME EXPERTS SAY TIMING

IS EVERYTHING, AND THE

BATTERY-POWERED CAR WILL

RIDE AGAIN.

IN THE MEANTIME, ISRAELIS

HAVE ANOTHER OPTION THAT IS

JUST AS GREEN.

AND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS

CHEAPER.

IN 2008, AN AVID BIKER NAMED

ASSAR GAFFNI HAD AN IDEA.

SUDDENLY IT STRUCK MY

MIND, WHY NOT TO MAKE A

BICYCLE OUT OF CARDBOARD.

SOON AFTER, I TALKED TO THE

ENGINEERS, WHICH I REALLY

HIGHLY APPRECIATE, AND THEY

SAID IT IS IMPOSSIBLE.

THERE IS NO WAY IT CAN BE

DONE.

WHILE I WAS EATING WITH MY

WIFE ONE DAY, SHE NOTICED

THAT I'M A LITTLE

DISTURBED.

I TOLD HER ALL OF THE THINGS

ABOUT THE ENGINEERS I WENT

TO, AND ALL OF THE THINGS

THEY SAID THAT IT IS

IMPOSSIBLE.

AND THEN SHE LOOKS AT ME.

AND SHE SAID, I KNOW YOU.

IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO TRY,

THEN YOU'RE GOING TO DRIVE

YOURSELF CRAZY, AND THEN

YOU'RE GOING TO DRIVE ME

CRAZY, AND THEN YOU'RE GOING

TO DRIVE THE ENTIRE FAMILY

CRAZY.

SO GO AHEAD AND TRY IT.

Gordon: FOUR YEARS AND

SIX PROTOTYPES LATER, THE

CARDBOARD BICYCLE WAS READY

TO RIDE.

THE FINISHED BIKE WEIGHS IN

AT JUST 20 POUNDS, AND YET

IT CAN HOLD A 500-POUND

RIDER.

AND UNLIKE REGULAR

CARDBOARD, IT IS COMPLETELY

WATER-PROOF.

MASS PRODUCTION ON THE BIKE

WILL START IN LATE 2018.

IT WILL START ABOUT $9 TO

MAKE AND SELL FOR ABOUT

$9.50.

FOR PEOPLE OF DREAMS, IT

IS ALL THROUGH THE BIBLE.

THAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN OUR

METHODOLOGY, IF YOU WILL,

THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

GOD GIVES US DREAMS.

IT IS FOR MAN TO INTERPRET

THEM AND MAN TO EXPERIENCE

THEM.

AND THAT'S THE ROOTS OF MUCH

OF OUR NATION.

THE FACT THAT WE'RE

FLOURISHING HERE IS IT IS A

SIGN OF GOD'S WILL.

THIS IS THE PLAN.

WE'RE GOOD PEOPLE.

WE'RE FAMILY-ORIENTED

PEOPLE.

WE HAVE JUST BEGUN TO FIGURE

OUT WE HAVE TO TELL OUR

STORY ABOUT WHO WE ARE,

RATHER THAN ENGAGE IN

CONSTANT BICKERING OVER THE

MIDDLE EAST CONFLICT.

WE HAVE TO GO AND CONVEY

WHAT THE BEAUTY OF ISRAEL

IS.

Gordon: WELL, THAT

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, A

MIRACLE FOR A MOM AND HIS 54

CHILDREN.

IT BRINGS SO MUCH JOY TO

SEE YOUR OWN KIDS LIVING

LIKE REAL PEOPLE.

IT FELT LIKE A PARTY.

I WAS SO HAPPY AND SO

PROUD.

Terry: SEE HOW

TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPED IN

ISRAEL IS HELPING THIS

FAMILY IN AFRICA.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS

INSPIRING STORY.

Terri: GEORGETTE IS MAMA

TO 45 OF HER CHILDREN.

SINCE I WAS SMALL, I USED

TO SAY I WANT TO HAVE AN

ORPHANAGE.

WITH A HUNDRED KIDS.

Reporter: TODAY SHE HAS

54 CHILDREN WHO CALL HER

MAMA.

I FEEL I'M A MOM.

I KNOW EACH CHILD AND I KNOW

EACH CHILD'S NEED.

Reporter: THEY LIVE

TOGETHER AT THIS CHILDREN'S

HOME, WHICH IS SUPPORTED BY

CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

THEIR HOUSE IS HIGH ON THE

HILL, IN THE OUTSKIRTS OF

CHINHASA IN CONGO.

WHILE THE CHILDREN HAVE

FOOD, CLOTHING, AND SHELTER,

THEY LACKED ONE BASIC

NECESSITY.

THE WATER IS LIFE.

GETTING WATER WAS SO

DIFFICULT, IT MADE ME SICK.

Reporter: EVERY DAY

AFTER SCHOOL, GENAVIK AND

THE OTHER CHILDREN WENT IN

GROUPS TO GET WATER.

THE TRIP DOWN TOOK MORE THAN

HALF AN HOUR.

THE PLACE WHERE WE GOT

WATER WAS DEEP IN THE

VALLEY, AT THE BOTTOM OF A

TALL MOUNTAIN.

Reporter: THEY FILLED

THEIR JUGS ONE BY ONE.

AND THEN THE CHILDREN FACED

THE LONG WALK HOME.

THAT TRIP MORE THAN AN

HOUR.

THEY CLIMBED UPHILL,

CARRYING THEIR HEAVY LOADS.

BY THE TIME I GOT HOME, I

WAS SO TIRED I FELT SICK AND

I COULDN'T DO ANYTHING

ELSE.

SOMETIMES KIDS ARE NOT

COMING BACK HOME AFTER

SCHOOL BECAUSE THEY SAY,

OKAY, IF I GO BACK HOME,

THEN THEY'LL SEND ME FOR

WATER.

AND SO THEY JUST WALK

AROUND.

AND WALKING AROUND, THEY'RE

CATCHING OTHER HABITS,

MEETING OTHER BAD FRIENDS

WHO DO NOT LIKE ALSO TO GO

HOME.

Reporter: WHAT THEY

NEEDED WAS A DEEP WELL.

BUT THERE IS BARELY ENOUGH

ELECTRICITY IN THAT AREA TO

POWER A LIGHTBULB.

THEY KNEW WITH GOD'S HELP

THERE MUST BE A WAY.

SO EVERY DAY THEY ASKED GOD

FOR A MIRACLE.

WE PRAYED, SURELY GOD SAW

THAT THERE WAS A REAL

PROBLEM, AND HE ANSWERED

US.

Reporter: CBN, IN

PARTNERSHIP WITH "INNOVATION

AFRICA" AND "THE ALLIANCE

FOR GLOBAL GOOD," DUG THE

WELL, AND INSTALLED AN

ARRAY OF SOLAR PANELS TO

POWER THE PUMP.

THE DAY OF COMPLETION WAS A

HUGE CELEBRATION.

IT FELT LIKE A PARTY.

IT WAS JUST LIKE PUTTING AN

END TO ONE TYPE OF LIFE, AND

GETTING WATER INTO A NEW

LIFE.

I WAS SO HAPPY AND SO

PROUD TO HAVE CLEAN WATER.

I FELT LIKE A HEAVY BURDEN

HAD BEEN TAKEN AWAY FROM

ME.

Reporter: INNOVATION

AFRICA IS FOUNDED BY SION

YARI.

SHE INSTALLED HER FIRST

SOLAR-POWERED

TANGANIA.

Reporter: TECHNOLOGY

DEVELOPED IN ISRAEL HAS

HELPED TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE IN AFRICA.

ONCE YOU REALIZE HOW

SIMPLE IT IS TO HELP OTHERS,

YOU HAVE TO HELP EVERYBODY

THAT YOU'RE SEEING AROUND.

THIS PARTNERSHIP WITH CBN

AND ALLIANCE FOR GLOBAL GOOD

IS VALUES COMING TOGETHER.

THIS IS WHAT A GOOD

PARTNERSHIP SHOULD BE LIKE.

AND HOPEFULLY WE CAN HELP

MANY MORE ORPHANS AND PEOPLE

AROUND AFRICA.

Reporter: BESIDES

PROVIDING MORE THAN ENOUGH

DRINKING WATER FOR THE

CHILDREN AND THE REST OF THE

COMMUNITY, THE WELL SUPPORTS

A DRIP IRRIGATION SYSTEM.

IN AN AREA WHERE IT IS

DIFFICULT TO GROW MUCH OF

ANYTHING, THE DRIP

IRRIGATION SYSTEM ALLOWS THE

KIDS HERE TO REAP A SMALL

HARVEST PRACTICALLY EVERY

DAY.

IT MAKES THIS APPLE TASTE

SO GOOD.

AND MAMA DOESN'T HAVE TO

SPEND ANY MONEY TO BUY

THEM.

Reporter: 9-YEAR-OLD

GENAVIK IS A VERY BRIGHT

GIRL.

AND NOW THAT SHE DOESN'T

HAVE TO GO GET WATER SAFER

EVERY DAY, SHE IS DOING

GREAT IN SCHOOL.

AFTER SCHOOL, I HAVE TIME

TO DO MY HOMEWORK.

CARRYING WATER FOR ME IS

NOT LIVING LIKE A PERSON IN

THIS CENTURY.

IT'S LIKE WALKING

BACKWARDS.

Reporter: TODAY EVEN

THE LITTLEST KIDS CAN HELP

OUT WITH WATER.

THE JOY THAT YOU SEE IN

THE FACE OF THE KIDS, WHEN

THEY'RE SEEING FOR THE FIRST

TIME CLEAN WATER COMING OUT

OF THE TAP SO EASILY -- SO

ALL OF THE JOYS WE'RE SEEING

TODAY, I BELIEVE IT IS

SOMETHING THAT WILL CHANGE

THE WAY THAT THEY ARE

LIVING.

Reporter: THE SOLAR

PANELS ALSO SUPPORT A

WIRELESS TRANSMITTER THAT

WIRES THE WHOLE SYSTEM.

WITH THEM AN EXPERT IN NEW

YORK OR ELSEWHERE CAN SEE

WHEN THE SYSTEM BREAKS DOWN

AND CAN REPAIR IT.

IT IS A SYSTEM THAT IS

CHANGING LIVES.

KIDS WANT TO BE

EDUCATED.

THEY'RE HAPPY HERE.

THEY HAVE CLEAN WATER.

THEY ARE CLEAN.

YOU GO BACK AFTER THREE

MONTHS, THEY HAVE FOOD.

THE EXTRA FOOD IS SOLD IN

THE MARKET.

THEY GET MONEY.

WITH THE MONEY, THE WOMEN,

THEY BUY COWS.

THEY BUY CHICKENS.

THEY CREATE BUSINESSES.

AND IT'S ECONOMIC DEVELOP

BECAUSE OF WATER, AND YOU'RE

ABLE TO PROVIDE BETTER

EDUCATION, ECONOMIC

DEVELOPMENT, FUTURE, LIFE,

OPPORTUNITIES.

Reporter: GEORGETTE

UNDERSTANDS WHAT THIS WELL

MEANS FOR HER FUTURE.

THIS IS THE STARTLY

PLACE.

GOD KNOWS THAT AND GOD IS

GOING FAR WITH IT.

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING.

WE ARE THANKFUL.

AND MY PRAY IS ALWAYS IF YOU

HELP US HELP THE KIDS, THIS

SHOULD FREE GOD'S HAND AND

SO THEY KNOW THAT HERE THERE

IS A GOD.

LET GOD BLESS THEM, AND LET

THEM ALWAYS BE AVAILABLE FOR

GOD TO USE THEM.

Reporter: GENAVIK JUST

KNOWS SHE DIDN'T HAVE TO

WALK DOWN THE MOUNTAIN

ANYMORE FOR BAD WATER.

SHE HAS GOOD FOOD, TIME TO

STUDY, AND CLEAN WATER RIGHT

NEXT TO HER HOUSE.

THIS IS A YEAR OF GOD'S

BLESSING.

WE USED TO BE MISSING A LOT

OF IMPORTANT THINGS, BUT NOT

ANYMORE.

WE HAVE WATER AND TOMATOES

AND MORE FOOD THAN WE EVER

HAD BEFORE.

I PRAY THAT GOD WILL BLESS

THE PEOPLE WHO HELPED US.

[CHEERING]

Terry: GOD USED YOU TO

SHOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST, TO

SHOW THE REALITY OF HIS

PRESENCE IN THEIR LIVES, IF

Gordon: STILL AHEAD,

WE'LL ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS

WE'LL ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS

ON ISRAEL RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: THE RESULTS OF

ISRAEL'S CURRENT ELECTION

HAS SOME CONCERNED.

WE RECEIVED LOTS OF

QUESTIONS AND PRAYER

REQUESTS ABOUT THE ELECTION

IN ISRAEL ON OUR Facebook

PAGE.

SO LET'S GO TO JESSICA IN

CHAT FOR MOR.

MORE.

TERRY, HERE IS A QUESTION

THAT CAME IN, ERIC WRITES:

"THE WHITE HOUSE RECENTLY

QUESTIONED BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU'S COMMITMENT TO

PEACE.

IS THIS SOMETHING WE SHOULD

BE WORRIED ABOUT?"

Gordon: YES.

WE SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT

THIS AND WHAT I PERCEIVE AS

A GROWING GAP BETWEEN ISRAEL

AND AMERICA.

IT IS OF GREAT CONCERN TO

ME.

NOW, WHAT HAPPENED HERE IS

IN THE ELECTION, AND THERE

WERE, TO MY ABSOLUTE

AMAZEMENT, THERE WERE GROUPS

FROM AMERICA WHO WERE TRYING

TO UNSEAT NETANYAHU, AND

THEY GOT SUPPORT IN THAT

EFFORT FOR SOME POLITICAL

OPERATIVES WHO USED TO WORK

FOR THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN.

AND SO THAT WAS GOING ON IN

THE MIDST OF A HEATED

ELECTION RACE.

AND NETANYAHU SAID A

GUARANTEE, THAT HE

GUARANTEED THERE WOULD NEVER

BE A TWO-STATE SOLUTION.

AND AFTER THE ELECTION, HE

TOOK THAT BACK.

AND SO THAT'S WHY THE WHITE

HOUSE IS NOW, YOU KNOW,

QUESTIONING HIS COMMITMENT

TO THE PEACE PROCESS.

THAT SAID -- AND ALL OF

THOSE ARE FACTS -- THE

LONG-STANDING ISRAELI POLICY

IS THE PALESTINIANS CAN HAVE

A STATE AT ANY TIME THEY

WANT ONE.

ALL THEY NEED TO DO IS TO

RECOGNIZE THAT ISRAEL HAS A

RIGHT TO EXIST.

AND REPEATEDLY THE

PALESTINIANS, THE ARABS,

HAVE REFUSED TO DO SO.

AND THAT'S WHY THERE ISN'T A

TWO-STATE TODAY.

WHAT WE'RE MOVING TOWARDS IS

THE RECOGNITION OF A

PALESTINIAN STATE THAT DOES

NOT DECLARE ISRAEL'S RIGHT

TO EXIST.

AND THAT WILL JUST BE A

RECIPE FOR WAR.

LET'S GO TO JESSICA FOR ONE

MORE QUESTION.
